Blue Ridge School
Parent: I have 2 boys presently at BRS. My boys could not be more different - one is social and outgoing and one is introverted, has ADHD etc. The school has been wonderful for both boys. My oldest is a senior and will be attending the #5 Engineering school in the US. He has been on the STEM path the entire time, is not sports inclined, and the staff has bent over backwards to bring him out of his shell and also provide him the level of education he demands. My younger son is also highly intelligent and has excelled whereas he had not at previous private schools. Honestly I think all he needed was the confidence and the daily affirmation that he is given at BRS. He is sports inclined and makes use of the school's facilities. As for college prep - forget academics for a min. Living in a dorm, having a roommate, etc. This takes one step out of the college prep process that people don't always think about. These boys know dorm living and it brings no angst in regards to college.
